GAO’s assessment of shared IRS data found that 65% of the employee identification numbers (EINs) used to identify entities in ERC claims were flagged for possible ineligibility. This particularly applied to 337 employers who established EINs in April 2020 or later, filed for credit in the second quarter of 2020, but failed to submit an employment tax return again.
